Los Angeles & Orange County newborn photographer

Congratulations on your new baby!  As a newborn photographer in Orange County, I know that there’s nothing sweeter or more innocent than a new-to-the-world baby. There’s magic in every tiny nose, crinkle, yawn, stretch, and eyelid flutter!

My baby photography style focuses on your little bundle of joy with soft, natural images and elegant props. From the first few days to their most memorable milestones, we can help you remember it. 

I provide in-studio or in-home  newborn sessions for my clients where I take plenty of photos of baby alone and also  with family.  I love getting all the tiny baby details and all the snuggles.

Let's capture your joy and preserve it forever!

The newBorn Experience

I'm SO happy you are here!  Getting to know each other is important.  Take a look around and feel free to look through my work.  I have all the the wraps, outfits, props, and studio equipment for the session.  Before booking, we will meet and discuss all of your questions and goals for your session.

1. Say Hello

2. Plan your session

After your initial phone call, we will meet to plan your session. When you book with us, we always begin with the end in mind. We’ll talk about what you envision for your session and we’ll design your session to complement your style and colors. The type of session and locations for your session will be discussed.  
Classic Newborn - Timeless portraits which can be done with baby wrapped or in a basket or other prop.  Several poses are done.
Newborn Family - Mom, dad, and siblings can be included in some of the images.

3. book your session

When you are ready to officially book, I will send you a questionnaire to get an even better understanding of your goals, a contract to sign, and an invoice to secure your session.  When those items are completed, you are officially booked!  I take a limited  number of sessions each month, so it is best to book early.  To get those cute, curly poses, it is best to book when your newborn is 5 - 14 days old.  Because I pride myself in quality work, we will choose the colors of wraps, the outfits, and any props at this time.

4. the big day!

Our session will be relaxed and comfortable. Baby's safety and comfort is my #1 goal.  I will guide you, so you won't wonder what to do. Time is allowed for feeding, changing, and snuggling your baby.  Expect the session to last 2 - 3 hours. You will receive a customized gallery to choose the images that you want.
Special family heirlooms can be included in the session
Don’t worry about your toddlers. We have toys to keep them occupied!

5. Enjoy your beautiful images!

Within two weeks of your session, we will meet for a reveal session where final decisions will be made. We will help you sort through the images and decide what would look best in your home. We offer archival quality prints, exquisite wall art, custom heirloom albums, gifts and so much more.
The final edited images and products will be ready about three weeks after your purchase.
No need to pick up your products, they will arrive at your home.
I'm here to help you all the way!

I was referred to Diane through a friend of a friend to do my newborn son’s photos. I was very thrilled with how quickly she responded from the very start and how communicative she was and that she checked in with me (preggo & mom brain made me very forgetful). I contacted her while I was still pregnant and then after I had my baby to set up his photo shoot and she was so helpful with giving information and answering all my questions. We decided to do our session in home because that was easier with a new baby. She came with so many options for props and backgrounds! It was so wonderful. She was patient with my baby and with me which was helpful especially when my baby ended up being fussy. She then came back over a few days later to look through the photos with me and to look through packages. I would highly recommend her!  - Lauren

"I would highly recommend her!"

My family and I loved working with Diane. She took such outstanding photos of my newborn that we went back months later for our Christmas card photo as well. Diane was very professional and I appreciated how quickly she gave me our photos. I would highly recommend her for your family.  CB

"Diane went beyond our expectations."

Diane is artistic and captures amazing shots.  We are so incredibly  pleased with the photos that Diane took of our newborn baby girl.  Diane went beyond our expectations - we were not expecting all the different poses and options, and we're delighted with the results.  We always felt she was mindful of our baby's comfort and safety as well.  Diane is warm and friendly and easy to get along with; she is clearly a photographer because she delight in capturing important moments artistically.      Sheilagh

We absolutely love our newborn photos!  Diane was extremely professional, kind, and patient with us during our newborn session.  We had an in home session.  We took posed newborn photos with the props, wraps, and headbands Diane brought., and we also took family photos in the nursery and room.  We got so many great shots!  As a new mom, I was nervous about a newborn session. You just don't know how the baby is going to be.  But Diane put us at ease, she was so patient with us and our baby.  She allowed us time to breastfeed and was so good at calming our newborn girl.  She worked really quick to pose and get great shots.  Thank you Diane! We are so grateful!  I highly recommend using Diane to capture this precious time!

Diane put us at ease; she was so patient with us and our baby.

I had a great experience with Diane.  She was very accommodating with dates and took a ton of photos.  I also loved that she came with a changing booth at the beach and accessories which really enhanced the overall look.  Looking forward to the newborn session.
